Ann Friedman went to Saturday's Glenn Beck rally and wrote about it for Longshot magazine.
The real America snorts. It is absolutely certain it will not be counted today. Have you seen that there are people all the way to the Washington Monument? When Glenn says, "I just got word from the media that there's over a thousand people here!", the real America chuckles knowingly. To the real America, Glenn Beck is not the media. And this is not a political event.
The real America just likes a good montage, with monuments that fade into city skylines that fade into churches that fade into Martin Luther King, Jr. that fade into a smoldering hole in Lower Manhattan.
